Two 1951 commercials for Bulova watches. These aired as part of a show which itself can be downloaded from the classic TV section (clue: look at the guy with the moustache and look up his name).

A filmed mid-1950s country music show. Includes a variety of styles of country music, plus a poorly-filmed square dancing segment.
